The Fate series, being one of the biggest media properties in the world, has many interesting merchandise that you can buy to show your love for the series. But one of those goods, that was announced on December 18, is a music box that costs a whopping 80,000 yen (US$730), all to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the franchise.
The music box is based on the young master Illyasviel von Einzbern, and sings the tune of “Die Lorelei.” You can actually sample the song on the website for the box. “Die Lorelei” features prominently in Illya’s route in the original visual novel under .. cold circumstances. The box, when closed, has a width of 21cm, depth of 12.4cm, and is 8.0cm tall, with a stained walnut finish.

You can start reserving the box now from the Aniplex+ website until April 5, 2020, with shipping confirmed for June 2020. While it doesn’t come with Illyasviel’s singing voice (luckily!), it does come with a new limited edition drawing from Type-Moon co-founder, Takashi Takeuchi!
